Bactrim, Cephalasporins, and macrolides are alternatives. You could

It depends on what kind of infection you are treating. Bactrim is cheap and very good. Some use ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, levaquin, cephalexin, azithromycin, clindamycin. Again, what you use depends on what you are treating.

A small percentage of people who are allergic to penicillin are also allergic to cephalosporins like keflex.

I am allergic to azithromycin, keflex, and amoxicillin. I'm not sure what I can take anymore. I currently have upper respiratory infection and Bactrim is not working. Help!

I am allergic to Keflex but Ceftin, second generation to Keflex, did not pass the penicillin border on me.
